Autif Kamal talks about how to identify assumptions within commands and questions. This provides commands and questions more context as to why they were made. Topics: Assumptions, Commands, Questions, Nonpropositions
Pastor Dave explores not only the assumptions we make, but also the assumptions others make of us - and sheds some light on how we can minimize the negative effects of faulty thinking Topics: Assumptions, Circumstances, Confidence
Autif Kamal demonstrates how to express categorical assumptions as conditional assumptions to focus on the causal relations rather than the attribution of a quality. Topics: Assumptions, Categorical, Conditional, Cause, Effect
Autif Kamal shows how this second type of categorical syllogism reveals an assumption in the form of a negative universal proposition. He also utilizes Euler circles to differentiate between valid and invalid categorical syllogisms of the second type.Originally Aired: 1/4/12 Topics: Syllogism, Categorical, Valid, Invalid, Assumptions
Autif Kamal shows the first type of categorical syllogism mentioned makes assumptions explicit. Namely, it makes categorical propositions with a universal quantity and affirmative quality explicit. Topics: Categorical, Propositions, Assumptions, Syllogisms, Argument
We assume that other people could have chosen differently in the past because we assume that they have the same knowledge and desires as us and wonder why they didn't do what we would have done in a similar situation.We also assume that we could have done differently in the past. Many of us would like to go into the past and fix what looks like a mistake to us now. Just because it is obvious to us what we should have done back then does not mean that it occurred to us to do it at that time.The... Topics: free will, determinism, false, assumptions
Autif Kamal talks about the implications one may infer about factors or causes that are lacking. That inference is what negative assumptions are. Topics: Inference, Assumptions, Negative, Causes, Lacking
Autif Kamal talks about how to derive contradictory categorical assumptions for an argument. Since contradictory categorical assumptions (as I call them) are equivalent in meaning to categorical assumptions, they basically serve as an analysis of the categorical assumption. Topics: Assumptions, Categorical, Contradictory, Implied, Equivalent
Autif Kamal talks about how to reveal generalizations or assumptions in arguments. Challenging the assumptions will challenge the argument that depends on it. If you don't know how to identify the assumption(s) of an argument, you are hindered that much more from challenging it. Topics: Arguments, Assumptions, Generalizations, Falsify, Specify
Autif shows how unstated assumptions can be made explicit for propositions (and arguments) with a positive quantity and particular quality. Those assumptions are made explicit through this third type of categorical syllogism. Topics: Assumptions, Unstated, Propositions, Explicit, Arguments
When a customer asks you a question, do you double-check your assumptions about their intended outcome? So often we take customer inquiries at face value, or simply assume we know what is meant. No matter what your job, you have customers, and clarifying your customersâ intended outcome is smart business. From the blog Customer Experience Optimization at http://ClearActionCX.com (3:50). Topics: customer experience management, CEM, Double-Check Assumptions
Autif Kamal shows you how to derive assumptions from excerpts of actual articles and without using words like "because" to identify a reason.Also, Autif Kamal talks about an important announcement regarding future logic & reasoning workshops. Topics: Assumptions, Reason, Causal Indicators, Cause, Because, Update
Autif Kamal talks about how you can use the negation implied in "but" to derive an assumption. "But" is merely an indication that there is a negation somewhere within the conjunctive proposition. Where the negation is actually located will vary from sentence to sentence. Topics: Conjunction, Proposition, Assumptions, Negation, But, Implied
Bro. Caloy Diño delivers a message based on Luke 13:1-9. He talks about how wrong assumptions about the nature and meaning of life can be dangerous. He points out three areas where most people have wrong assumptions: about the nature of God's judgment; about the purpose of life; and about the aim of the Christian faith. If one is not careful, wrong assumptions may lead to eternal judgment. Topics: assumptions, God, judgment, life, faith, purpose, Christ
Stereotypes are bad. They are nothing but uninformed assumptions made by people too lazy to learn the truth. But Jesus actually wanted Christians to be stereotyped! Why? Topics: Stereotypes, bias, rascism, love, Christianity, church, assumptions, hate
Every argument and assumptions implies or contains reasons, but not all of them explicitly tell you what the reason(s) is (are). Autif Kamal gives you a mindset to adopt to determine the reasons for an argument or assumption regardless of whether an author explicitly tells you what reason(s) there might be. Topics: Reasons, Arguments, Assumptions, Mindset, Why, Implicit, Cause, Effect, Indicators
The Audacity of Hope, Look to the Cookie (a podcast)Episode 37.1 is a FREE BONUS. Germar gave this lecture on Barack Obama's second book, The Audacity of Hope, in 2011. Here, he focuses on three key points: perspective, faith, and family. A key concept is "assumption disrupting." It's not a typical pod, but hopefully insightful and entertaining. Topics: barack obama, faith, family, politics, audacity of hope, germar, look to the cookie, perspective,...
